Wicked TicketsHave you ever wondered why the Wicked Witch of the West was so nasty to everyone she met? The Wizard of Oz tells the story of Dorothy Gale and her journey to see the Wizard, but viewers never got to hear the Witch's side of the tale. Gregory Maguire's novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, first hit the shelves in 1995 but was adapted for the stage in 2003 with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book created by Winnie Holzman. The stage production of Wicked begins with Glinda the Good taking the audience back to a time when a misunderstood emerald-skinned girl arrived at Shiz University where their troubled relationship began.
